McMillan LLP Wins IFLR1000 Canada’s 2020 Banking and Finance Deal of the Year

McMillan is delighted to announce that it has received the prestigious “Banking & Finance Deal of the Year” Award for its role in the Wataynikaneyap CAD$1.9 Billion Transmission Project, at the 2020 IFLR1000 Canada Awards. This recognition reflects a long tradition of success for our Financial Services group and is a testament to the firm’s commitment to client service excellence and market leadership.

Presented annually, the IFLR1000 Canada Awards celebrate the most innovative deals and the best-performing Canadian firms and lawyers. See the full list of 2020 IFLR1000 Canada Award winners here.

Wataynikaneyap CAD$1.9 Billion Transmission Project

The Wataynikaneyap Project is renowned for its significant benefits to the residents and region of Northwestern Ontario. The Project will connect 17 remote First Nations communities to clean, reliable and accessible energy through approximately 1,800 Kilometers of new transmission lines. McMillan acted for the Federal Department of Justice and Indigenous Services, with a team lead by Robert Scavone and Eric Friedman.

McMillan’s Financial Services Group is unique in that unlike most other large Canadian firms, we have a core bank lending practice that is based on lender clients rather than an add-on group materially relying upon borrower-side work generated from corporate practice. We understand the needs of lenders – from the establishment of their operations to originating a loan to selling the loan (or participating, syndicating or moving the risk off balance sheet) to working out the loan. We understand how to structure transactions to meet internal and external requirements (including credit approval, regulatory restrictions and capital requirements).  We are a financial services law firm acting for Canadian and international financial institutions and known for our work in cross-border transactions.
